Your Online Transactions Secured by International Standards
In simple terms, a payment gateway is a mediator between ecommerce platforms and customers that securely collect money from customers, whether in the form of credit/debit cards, PayPal or direct payments processing and deposits it to the ecommerce’s bank account.
A payment gateway normally carries out 3 functions:
- Encrypting data between customer’s browser and ecommerce server.
- Requesting authorization upon approval of payment processor from credit card company or banking institution to move forward with the transaction
- Once the authorization is successful, the payment gateway notifies the ecommerce accordingly and the banking institution transfers money to the payment gateway which in turn, transfers money to the ecommerce platform.
Online payment has made shopping easier from all around the world. It is fast and convenient for customers to pay ecommerce platforms. But traces of e-transactions remain difficult to verify till date, which can further give rise to the occurrence of frauds during online transactions. Online stores need to be proactive by using a payment gateway to prevent fraud on their ecommerce platforms and security breach of their customers’ credit or debit cards and personal data.
